Two more days of the hot sunny weather and then switching to a cooler regime. But very little rain. Monday will be hot and sunny. As will Tuesday. Cloudy on Wednesday but staying dry.  A lot of cloud on Thursday too with the chance of a light shower in the evening. A bit brighter on Friday with chance of a light shower early in the day. A fresh blustery day for Saturday with chance of a light shower. A fair day then for Sunday. Prospects for next week are for continuation of cool temperatures and it could be Tuesday or Wednesday before we see any appreciable rain.
